You simply can't have a list of best dubstep artists without including Benga - especially as he is so closely linked to the aforementioned Skream. Also hailing from Croydon in England, Benga started working in the music industry at a young age. There's no doubt that he's a kingpin of the dubstep empire, but he doesn't like being put in a box. In fact, that's probably the reason why he has taken the dubstep genre to new heights - he pushes the boundaries of what's expected instead of staying tied to its roots. However, at the moment his future within the industry is undecided. It'd be a shame to see such talent quit so young, although there have been rumours about a new album. The question is: will he or won't he?
